Below is a list of the 97 DocBook XML tags found in the Installation Guide. AsciiDoc does not have a lot of semantic markup. There is a possibility of creating some small semantic elements to use within AsciiDoc to provide three benefits:

1. Meaning for translators doing i18n so they can decide on whether to localize a term or not 2. Consistency of formatting. No one has to memorize that element A is italic or element B is bold 3. Automated testing with something like emender down the road.

This table is not complete and contains ideas. Please add justifications to keep a tag. Tags that shouldn't be kept, leave blank. Disagree? add a note in the table.
